The spine is a structure that fulfills a fundamental function in our body. Not only does it provide protection to the spinal cord, but it also contains nerves and ligaments that allow us to move freely. Spinal fusion in Mexico is an excellent alternative to maintain the functionality of the spine to resolve some symptoms such as pain and other discomforts.
The spine is made up of 33 small interlocking bones called vertebrae. Between each of these bones, discs, ligaments, and muscles provide stability, firmness, and movement to the structure. There are cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae.
However, when one of these vertebrae is damaged by degenerative disease, injury, or wear and tear, it can cause movement that results in constant pain or instability. Therefore, spinal fusion in Mexico is a surgical procedure that aims to join two or more vertebrae to maintain alignment and eliminate movement in that area.
Orthopedic surgeons use bone grafts to promote good bone healing, as well as screws and a solid plate to create internal fixation. Thanks to this technique, pain can be reduced or completely eliminated, and further damage to the spine can be corrected or prevented. Currently, it is possible to perform it safely using laparoscopic techniques in many cases.
OUR ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS
For many, spinal surgery can be intimidating as this part of our body provides flexibility and contains many nerve endings. That is why we have created an easy and comfortable process so that both our patients and their families feel relaxed and safe.
If you're wondering how to get started, here's part of the process:
Our clients from Mexico and other countries can receive a first face-to-face or virtual consultation free of charge. There, an orthopedic surgeon in Tijuana will evaluate the clinical picture of the applicant. Your medical history, symptoms, previous surgeries, and other studies will be taken into account to help determine the type of damage to the spine. In some cases, the problem originates in the neck, back, or lower spine.
Therefore, your surgeon will determine if spinal fusion is the best procedure for the patient. This first consultation will also help people express their doubts and concerns and learn more about the procedure. If you are a suitable candidate, your surgery can be scheduled as soon as possible.
Is a surgery abroad less expensive? Indeed, it is! If you live outside of Mexico and have never experienced medical service outside of your country, don't worry. An agent with great experience will constantly contact you to help you plan your trip and stay. Once the surgery date is confirmed, the first step is to find the best route and flight date.
Our designated agent will provide you with information on basic things for surgery such as the type of clothing or other basic personal items suitable for spinal fusion in Mexico. You will also receive a list of recommended hotels and recovery houses that are located near our clinics, in addition to which days before you will receive your scheduled itinerary during your stay.
Typically, our clients arrive one day prior to their surgery date. Once our transport picks you up at the airport, you will have a scheduled consultation to conduct medical studies and check-ups and inform you of the latest details. Your orthopedic surgeon will make sure you are physically fit to have surgery.
She will also discuss the length of the procedure, the type of anesthesia that will be used, and some important recommendations for your recovery. If you have a chronic illness or are taking any medications, it is essential to tell your doctor to anticipate situations that may cause a reaction to anesthesia.
After surgery, depending on the case, some patients may spend one or two days under observation and then be discharged from the hospital. While our network of medical centers has excellent facilities, you'll also be happy to know that you can spend the rest of your recovery in the comfort of your luxury hotel or recovery home.
This way, you can spend this stage in the company of your companion and have more privacy and services that allow you to be more relaxed and comfortable. Our coordinating agent and the medical team that treated you will continue to be in constant contact with you to provide you with medical care whenever you need it.
